Hard Revenge, Milly: Bloody Battle

Hard Revenge, Milly gets a sequel, the upcoming Hard Revenge, Milly: Bloody Battle! Hard Revenge, Milly was part of the Neo Action double feature (along with The Masked Girl) No word on if this will be part of another double feature, or if The Masked Girl will also be sequelized. Now I guess I should get around to watching my copy of the Neo Action Double Feature. Two movies with girls kicking butt for the price of one, I am not sure why I haven’t gotten to it!

After Milly (Miki Mizuno) eliminates the Jack Brothers to avenge her family, a beautiful girl named Haru (Nao Nagasawa) approaches her for help avenging her own boyfriend. Milly initially brushes her off, but eventually recognizes her passion for vengeance and agrees to train her.

Soon, Ikki (Kazuki Tsujimoto) and his brother Huma (Rei Fujita), two of Jack’s former associates, arrive to take them on. Milly makes short work of their minions and knocks Huma out cold, but the steel-armed Ikki manages to injure her severely. Will she be able to survive and help Haru exact vengeance?

Neo-Action Double Bill

Remember when we wrote about Hard Revenge, Milly? Of course you do, because you check this website every day! So that 44 minute film is part of a double feature! The Neo-Action Double Feature! It’s like Grindhouse except not four hours long. Milly is being teamed with director Isao Kaneko’s The Masked Girl, about a girl who is genetically modified to be a superheroine by a villain.

Plot of Hard Revenge, Milly

In Hard Revenge, Milly, abolition of gun control laws at some indeterminate point in the future causes Yokohama to become a lawless bastion of violent crime. The worst of the new breed of criminals, “The Jack Brothers”—named for their leader, Jack (Mitsuki Koga)—brutally murder the husband and baby of Milly (Miki Mizuno) in front of her eyes and leave her for dead. Milly survives the incident and vows to get revenge. After receiving sword training from a master named Jubei, Milly infiltrates the abandoned factory The Jack Brothers use as their base of operations and murders Jack’s henchmen one by one, leading to a final bloody showdown.

Plot of The Masked Girl

In The Masked Girl an ordinary high school student named Ai Hoshino (Yuki Shimizu) is kidnapped on her way home from school. She later wakes up and finds herself held captive in the hideout of “Joker” and the evil Black Maria (Aiko Sato). Luckily she’s able to escape with the help of Aoyama (Tsuyoshi Kida), but not before being genetically altered by Joker—giving her super-human powers. While being pursued by agents of Joker, Ai confides in her friend Yumi (Shizuka Nakamura), but discovers Yumi has also been altered by Black Maria and brainwashed into swearing allegiance to Joker. Ai is forced to fight Yumi, but more powerful enemies will soon arrive. Eventually Ai gets a superhero outfit from Aoyoma and becomes “The Masked Girl” to confront Black Maria’s minions.

Nippon Cinema has the trailer of The Masked Girl, which is also at the Official Site for the two films.

Upcoming Japanese female revenge flick – Hard Revenge, Milly

Tokyo Graph has info on the upcoming Japanese female revenge flick Hard Revenge, Milly


Actress Miki Mizuno, who has earned a reputation as an action star, has taken on her most demanding role yet. She was cast as the lead in Takanori Tsujimoto’s “Hard Revenge, Milly,” which follows in the same vein as Quentin Tarantino’s violent action film “Kill Bill.” Similar to Uma Thurman’s character in that movie, Mizuno’s Milly is a woman seeking revenge against those who killed her family.

Milly hits theaters in August
